Questions and Answers

How long is your ceremony?

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant

It depends on the style of your ceremony.

If you would like to have a bespoke ceremony with personal story and vows, rituals, reading etc, it can take up to 30mins.
Simple elopement style ceremony can take 15mins or so.

Bilingual ceremony will obviously take longer but even if you want a bespoke bilingual ceremony I will try to keep it under 30mins as if it's any longer than that your guest would start yawning... :)

Do you travel outside Sydney? Other states? Overseas?

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant

Yes! 

I love travelling to different locations for weddings.

There will be a travel charge to cover my time, petrol and toll for NSW.

Interstate travel charge is usually return flight + local transport + interstate travel surcharge

I have traveled to Japan and Spain for weddings too!

As long as the border is open, I usually travel to Japan once a year around May and if you happen to be getting married when I am in Japan, you just pay for my domestic transport. 

Please ask about details.

Our beautiful intimate ceremony overlooking Bondi Beach on a lovely Saturday morning was made possible by Megumi as our celebrant. It was such a special moment that we will remember forever. Throughout the whole process she remained present and listened to our wishes. It was so great to meet with her before the ceremony, and she made sure that our ceremony would be exactly what we wanted it to be: grounded, romantic, peaceful and filled with joy and love. She will definitely give you the best and most authentic experience. We give our highest and warmest recommendations for Megumi.

Thank you Rannva, it was very special to me as well... and you know it because I was teary too wasn't I! I remember everything so well too... the vows, the tears (and your smudged mascara hehe), how hot it was and we had the blue sky despite the bushfire, the surprise guitar performance. Such a lovely memory for me to treasure too! Xx

Megumi was simply incredible. I was so nervous about finding the right celebrant for our wedding (especially one we hadn’t met before) but we were incredibly lucky we found her. Megumi made everything comfortable, relaxed, jovial, warm, and brought so much energy and brightness to our day that she ended up being the best decision we made. Highly recommend! :)

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thank you so much Mandy for your loveliest words. I was so honoured to be there on the day but also felt so lucky you shared all your stories with me during the planning process too. And the hand fasting was so special and I absolutely loved it xxx

We are super happy to have had Megumi as our celebrant for our April wedding. From the get go Megumi set us at ease with the legal documentation requirements, talked us through things to consider, and made planning the day very easy. We went with Megumi's bespoke package and she took the time to get to know us and weave our personal story into the ceremony itself. On the day, before we walked down the aisle, she fully engaged our guests and had them laughing and at ease. Many of our guests commented on her sense of humour, her fantastic sense of style and her overall friendliness and warm nature. The ceremony went off without a hitch and Megumi helped us and our photographer to keep the guests present for group photos. We highly recommend Megumi to anyone without hesitation.

Kem and Colin, thank you for your wonderful review and thank YOU for choosing me to be your celebrant. I loved being a part of your special day but I also really enjoyed the planning process, getting to know you and hear your story at my "city office" Xx

My husband and I are extremely happy to have had Megumi san as our wedding celebrant. We had a small and intimate wedding. She performed the ceremony both in English and Japanese for my family members who joined from Japan via video call. My husband family and my family had never met before, so we had family introduction after the ceremony. She kindly jumped in and helped us translating during the family introduction. Megumi san is a very kind and friendly person :)

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thank you so much for your kind words Mimu san and thank you for choosing me to be your celebrant. It was my privilege to be officiate and to help you with the first and very special meeting of the families. Xx

My wife and I are extremely happy to have had Megumi officiate our wedding. From the first day we met to have a catch up and get to know each other, Megumi was so bubbly and full of energy, we knew we had to go with her. On the day of the wedding, she was so accommodating making extra effort with the event staff to make sure everything was set up. When the ceremony started she gave a short introduction and then said some lovely words about us. The ceremony was amazing and we couldn't have asked for anything better. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant.

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Hi Benjamin and Samantha, thank you for your lovely words. It was my job to bossy and tell the venue staff to do things for you while you try to calm the butterflies in your tummy before the ceremony! Your vows were so heartfelt and beautiful I am glad you did it. Thank you for choosing me to be your celebrant Xxx

15 May 2021

Megumi was amazing right from the get go. She helped us in so many aspects, from simple changes that we needed to make, to the really big changes we needed to change, she was right there with us all the step of the way. She is a very easy going person. We would like to thank Megumi Carver for allowing us to use her service as it would not have been the amazing wedding it was if we didn’t have her.

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thank you Brad for the lovely reviews. No problems with the changes at all, I was glad that you could have your reception as planned! It was my absolute honour to be involved in your beautiful wedding! Xx

14 Mar 2021

Megumi-san was such a pleasure to have as our celebrant and MC for our special day. Everything on the day, as well as the positive communication in the lead up to the wedding, was top notch. It was great having someone who was passionate and involved with the operations of the day, as well as being an important and integral part of the wedding. Being able to do the ceremony and parts of the reception in Japanese was also really helpful, as we could stream these segments to family members in Japan. It was wonderful to get to know Megumi-san, work with her and share our special day together. Thanks again!

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Hi Andrew, thank you so much for your review. I had an awesome day with you guys and planning it together was fun too! Thank you for sharing all your relationship episodes, I enjoyed writing my script. And the reception! Your guests were easy to be entertained and my job was easy :) Arigato for choosing me to be your celebrant and MC!

We were very happy to choose Megumi as the celebrant for our wedding. First of all, she tried to know about us with a smell meeting. (How we met, what was the word for propose, etc). When we had some questions after the meeting, she answered clearly and quickly with mails. Megumi performed our ceremony in both English and Japanese, so my parents could understand our ceremony. She even really cared about my wedding dress's hem. ( We had our wedding in the park, so lots of leaves and grasses stuck my dress's hem!!)I thought she had Japanese- like kind-hearted.💕 If you are looking for your celebrant, we strongly recommend Megumi !! Finally, I can't thank you enough, Megumi. Thank you so much for your help. From our bottom of heart. Maiko, Martin James

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Maiko san and Martin, thank you so much for your lovely words and choosing me to be your celebrant. It was my privilege to be a part of your ceremony and yes there were sooo many leaves and twigs lol! Good we managed to get most of them off!

12 Dec 2020

Megumi was the celebrant for our wedding and my husband and I couldn't have been happier with how the ceremony went. Megumi first took the time to get to know us personally through some very casual meetings where she was genuinely interested in how I met my husband and how our relationship led up to our wedding day. Megumi performed our ceremony in both English and Japanese as we live steamed it to our family in Japan. Megumi made our wedding day very special for us with some fun moments and true professionalism. We are so happy we chose Megumi to be our wedding celebrant and we have no hesitation in recommending Megumi to anyone considering her to be their celebrant on such a special day.

Hi Yuka and Richard, thank you so much for your kind words. Although it was not quite the way you originally planned but it was such a beautiful ceremony and you definitely had the wow factors with the car, bridge and how hot you both looked!! Hope Yuka's family enjoyed attending via videocall. Can't wait for the BIG wedding in (fingers crossed) near future! Xx

Megumi did an absolutely terrific job at our garden wedding in Melbourne. Her positivity and advice made it a really smooth process to prepare for the big day. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful.

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thanks Anna and Adam, it was such a FUN trip for me to do! It was definitely the best styled and well organised backyard weddings I had. Thank you so much for sharing your story with me and having me at your beautiful wedding. So good that we scraped in pre Covid!!

24 Nov 2019

Megumi was the PERFECT choice for us on our special day! We had the wedding of our dreams in both English and Japanese and we also had Megumi as our MC at our reception. Megumi personalised our ceremony and there was laughter and happy tears all around. I plan on staying married to my husband for the rest of my life, but I wouldn't hesitate on having her as my celebrant again <3 Thanks Megumi-san!!!! <3 <3 <3

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thank you for your review Emily, what a fun day it was... and I loved the ring exchange surprise worked! If you want to have a vow renewal one day I would definitely love to be your celebrant again! Xx

It was great to have her as a celebrant at our wedding. She conducted ceremonies in English and Japanese so that all our guests could understand and enjoy the ceremony. Preparation was fun too. We really enjoyed working with her! Thank you Megumi!!

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thanks Mariko and Jeff, it was awesome to be there with you right next to the Sydney's icons. Also the meeting/playdate was fun with both of our kids! Thank you for having me as a part of your special day Xx

8 Jun 2019

What can I say other than Megumi is just fabulous. The process was so easy and casual and we were immediately comfortable with Megumi from the very start. She helped us with our engagement surprise wedding and we honestly couldn't be happier with how Megumi did it. Thank you for everything Meg xoxoxo

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thank you Kat for your wonderful review. Ahh I was pretty nervous doing my first surprise wedding and so chuffed that it went well!! Thank you for letting me plan the fun wedding with you xx

Can’t begin to explain how wonderful Megumi made our wedding day. Our ceremony was so unique and special. I would highly recommend her, she is very friendly and put so much effort into our day.

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Oh it is hard for me to explain how wonderful your wedding was! I loved hearing your ideas and stories during the planning and so glad that I could create the ceremony you wanted. Thank you for finding me xx

18 May 2019

We had an amazing day with Megumi as our wedding celebrant. As a multi racial couple, she was able to use her bilingual skills to to do a great job communicating with both families. Both before and during the event she was very flexible with us in producing the exact wedding we had dreamed of. She has a calm and super friendly attitude. She is Just the Best, we could not have imagined a better fit for our special day. Thank you very much Megumi!

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant  

Thanks Andrew for the kind words and giving me a unforgettable experience of being a part of your fun and creative wedding in Japan! It was so happy and excited that I could be in Japan and deliver an Australian style ceremony for you and your guests. Glad you liked it. I LOVED your funny first dance - Will you marry me? haha
